Nintendo goes NASCAR, gets a beer gut photo



Believe it or not, Japanese gaming company Nintendo is the new sponsor of Greg Biffle's #16 Ford Fusion in this year's NASCAR events. Now, this is not a little sticker on the rear of the vehicle, either. The whole car is basically a fast-moving, white and blue advertisement for the Nintendo Wii.

Fans of cars driving in countless circles will get to see the racecar's debut on Sunday, August 12th at Watkins Glen International in New York, and again at the Dover International Speedway in Delaware on September 23rd. The Watkins Glen race will  be on ESPN at 1 p.m., so those who would like to maybe see the car for a few minutes before switching back to video gaming can.

Nintendo will have a Nintendo Street Team at upcoming NASCAR events, letting redneck families get their hands on that there game tape system they saw at the Wal-Marts. "Mah, they got that one with the remote!"  Both the Wii and Nintendo DS will be available for play, with Mario Strikers Charged and Pokemon loaded up for play between beer breaks.

Hit the jump to see where the Nintendo Street Team will be in the coming months.
July 13 - 15: Chicagoland Speedway

Aug. 17 - 19: Michigan International Speedway

Aug. 31 - Sept. 2: California Speedway, Fontana, CA

Sept. 21 - 23: Dover International Speedway, Delaware — be sure to check out the Wii-themed race car at Sunday's race!

Oct. 12 - 14: Charlotte Motor Speedway, North Carolina
